How to Draw Chibi Step By Step by markcrilley How to Draw Chibi Step By Step by markcrilley
A step by step lesson adapted from my latest YouTube video, which you can view here:

[link]

The Japanese phrase at the bottom of the tutorial is "Genki yo!" It can be translated as "I'm full of energy, I feel great, etc."

A super big thank you to anyone who supports me by purchasing "Mastering Manga." It's available in both paperback and ebook form at bn.com: [link]

And at Amazon: [link]

I haven't attempted any chibis yet...lol maybe I should try, I think a few of my watchers would never let me live that down.

Years and years ago I encountered your Mika Falls series and I bought all four books, I found the art style and story very interesting. Just a few minutes ago I was searching 'how to draw a chibi' on DA and discovered one of your tutorials, I went 'hey this is great!' and at the bottom I looked at the artist comments with a 'Oh hey! I remember this guy!' and after several clicks through your gallery I decided your Mastering Manga book is a good investment and very well priced!

I'll be happily receiving my copy in 4-14 business days. Thank you.

I think u must teach how to draw chibi step by step more clearly. First you must teach how to draw the head, when we see the head from many side, status of face, eyes, nose, etc.

I didn't know you had a DA! i'll defiantly buy your book! Didn't knew you had a "how to draw" book, just knew about Miki falls from youtube XD you should make more books like this! or like a short 20 pages per book series on certin parts of drawing or how to draw's that foucs on parts like, hands, feet, eyes, head, hair, clothes and body proportions. i'd get em all and more money for you! so every one wins
